I have a large project coming up (100'X30' building) that will have a
lot of 2x6's and 2x8's to be cut. I'm going to be getting a new miter
saw, as the old cheepo 10" doesn't cut deep enough into the table to
cut a 2x6 without a bit of lift at the end of the cut. I'm looking at
the 12" dewalt (maby the duel bevel) as my budget will be only about
the $500can range. Would I be better off getting a 10" slide? Is the
factory blade good, or is it something to upgrade as soon as possible?
I have a 12" Dewalt. I built a major addition on my house then loaned
it to my neighbor who doubled size of his house and I continue to cut
everything from kindling to ABS pipe. Blade's never been off the saw.
(Well, maybe my neighbor took it off to clean it. He always brings my
tools back looking like they came out of the box. Wish he'd borrow
